Date of Stay: March, 2012
I chose to stay at this RV park because the reviews for White's City were very mixed. I did see White's City after I had already spent the first night at the KOA, and I feel like White's would have been adequate. The KOA RV park has great facilities and a small gift shop & RV supplies. Seasonal swimming pool and a hot tub for adults only open in evenings. Nice owners. They serve dinner meals as well. They seem to have considered a lot when designing this park. There are 2 fenced in dog run areas. Very well thought out and immaculately clean. There are 2 negatives though. The park is a long ways away from Carlsbad caverns or anywhere else. this KOA park offers much more in an RV park than I would need unless I was going to stay at that RV park for an extended period of time. The park is way out in the middle of nowhere. There are 2 other RV parks in Carlsbad that I saw while driving through town, but they are not listed on this RV reviews website. Normally I wouldn't complain about the location except that the KOA place was expensive; $48.95 per night for myself and 2 kids with a 10% Cruise America discount. The owners have considered designing the KOA as if it could be a place to stop and rest for a few days, but at those prices who could afford to? I will not be back to this KOA and will consider White's City on my next RV trip through the area. I will gas up before I go though, because White's jacks up their prices compared to the town of Carlsbad.

We arrived into the Cortez area after 7 pm without any reservations to a local RV park. They accepted my GS discount. It was March 1, and i had not realized until after I started calling that most of the parks were seasonal and would not open until at the 15th of March or later. I finally found the review of Sundance and so glad i did. They lady said they were closed but that she would remain open for me. She gave me directions and I arrived in only a few minutes. The park was CLEAN and very accessible. The showers were GREAT. They each were inside of a little closet so that you could lock the door behind you. The laundry facility was good and always in use. Cheapest gas for miles and there were some good restaurants in the area. There were a few campers that looked like they had been there for some time, but did not look like they were squatters. Dog walk area was small but adequate. Snow the next morning made the uphill exit impossible to use, so they opened the back gate and I was able to leave that way. Next time, I won't even call anyone else. i would definitely stay here again.

Oh my goodness. This was my first time ever in an RV and I picked the grand-daddy RV park of them all. This place is nice. The area is easy to get to. The place has security at the entrances. There is a camping world inside the facility. They offer mechanical service/rv cleaning if needed. They have a great heated pool and hot tub. Full service restaurant and bar with great prices. There are citrus trees all over and you can pick some if it's ripe (best to wait until Xmas before picking). Them Yankees tend to pick the fruit too early. There were still some grapefruit and oranges on top of some trees while i was there. Family friendly, and the cheapest laundry facilities on our 18 day road trip Fenced in dog run area. My first time to Tucson, but I loved it. We will be back and we will stay at this place every time. This is just the best RV park that I saw on my 18 day trip, and no place else even came close to compare.
